Bloodhunt PS5 January Update Patch Notes – Jan 24, 2023

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt December update is now available on PS5 and PC(Steam). According to the official Bloodhunt patch notes, the latest update adds a new hunting rifle to the game. Unfortunately, since the release, players are experiencing fps drop and performance issues. Today’s Bloodhunt version 1.010 will address a few of these issues. Check out more details below.

What is new in Bloodhunt January Update? – January 24, 2023


The Hunting Rifle is a single-action rifle that packs quite a punch, getting hit by it will give the target Kindred a nasty bleeding surprise.

The Hunting Rifle sits somewhere in between the Sniper Rifle and the Marksman Rifle in that it has a lower rate of fire than the latter but a higher damage output. Additionally, it introduces a unique bleeding feature that makes it ideal for hunting. Its main weakness is that it only comes with an iron sight, which narrows its use for long distances.


Getting hit by the Hunting Rifle might not be as bad initially as getting struck by the Sniper, but its bullets behave uniquely, expanding wounds on vampires and making them bleed over time.


This update also adds a new mechanic that challenges and makes it feel more rewarding when you perform daring feats in the game by awarding you a medal. All medals are displayed in the middle of the screen highlighting your accomplishment.
